Though Russia still has an undiversified and stagnant economy, it was one of the early countries in the world to realize the value of remotely conducted cyber intrusions.

In recent years, many Russia hacking groups have emerged as one of the most sophisticated nation-state actors in cyberspace, producing highly specialized hacking techniques and toolkits for cyber espionage.

Over the past three decades, many high profile hacking incidents—like hacking the US presidential elections, targeting a country with NotPetya ransomware, causing blackout in Ukrainian capital Kiev, and Pentagon breach—have been attributed to Russian hacking groups, including Fancy Bear (Sofacy), TurlaCozy BearSandworm Team and Berserk Bear.
